LAHAD DATU: Conventional fishing trawlers are finding it difficult to compete in deep-sea fishing and have resorted to ‘shallow-sea fishing’.

The trend has become common as another vessel was caught red-handed by Marine Police in the east coast of Sabah for operating in shallow waters.

Sabah Marine Police commander ACP Mohamad Pajeri Ali said a Marine police patrol boat spotted the fishing vessel trawling two nautical miles from land at Tanjung Malandung at 8.40am on Saturday.

According to him, a team was on patrol during “Op Gelora” in waters off the district here, when it saw the fishing trawler operating in shallow waters close to the shore.

The boat skipper, 36, and his five crew members were detained and the trawling net with nearly 20 kg of catch were seized and taken back to the Lahad Datu Marine Police base for further investigation under the Sabah Fisheries Act 1985, he said.

This month alone, the authorities have nabbed no less than five fishing trawlers and boats for catching fish in shallow waters.
